Training New Leaders

Starts with self!

Training new leaders require patience, understanding, and space for growth and development. Remember, you don’t know everything, however, you both know some things, it’s the collective wisdom and knowledge that makes the biggest difference in the lives of leaders young and elder. We must not compete for the affection and attention of the young, and the elder must hold gracious space with active listening to respond to key questions, and seek life experiences to share as a guide through the challenging systems of the youthful warriors. Courage without wisdom is like running in place, with no forward momentum. Wisdom without courage is like running to no place. We must both pace ourselves, and respect the knowledge, attitudes, skills, and habits of both young and elder to create a beloved community. My experiences are unique to me, they only become valuable to those with the acquired thrust to listen, learn and apply. The same philosophy applies to elders, listen, learn and share how the generational knowledge connects to the wisdom you’ve acquired, it is the mutual respect that allows for growth by an elder and young leaders. # Reflections #directions.
